DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL

Premiere collaboration between groundbreaking music artist Danger Mouse
and luminary filmmaker David Lynch
On view at the Michael Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles
May 30–July 11, 2009

Along with the CD-R and the book release, Lynch‘s original photographic artwork from Dark Night Of The Soul can currently be viewed up close and personal at Los AngelesMichael Kohn Gallery.  The show runs from May 30-July 11, 2009, so it will still be up for about another month for those fortunate enough to be able to catch it.

Here’s a description of the event taken from the official press release:

Fifty of Lynch’s photographs are mounted on aluminum panels that seem to float on the gallery walls, reinforcing the moody rhythms of the music from Dark Night of the Soul that will play throughout the gallery. The installation encourages a fully enveloping experience that surpasses the individual visual or auditory elements.

The 50 photographs referenced in the press release are the same images that grace the pages of the hardcover, limited edition book containing the blank DNOTS “artifact” CD-R.  The photos, which embody the same dark and emotional imagery as Lynch‘s cinematography, are all untitled.  Each one, however, contains a caption with a song title and a number from 1-3 or, in most cases, 1-4, which denotes the image number and track that inspired it.  All of the gallery pieces also contain the following specs.

Artist: David Lynch
Medium: Digital film, inkjet print on glossy paper
Mounted: Aluminum panel
Dimensions: 24 inches (height) x 26 inches (width)
CreationYear: 2009

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it’s hard to recall all of the details.

I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn’t actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room… but it wasn’t actually here… it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle.
